History

Since 2003, our Centre has been providing the Integrated Employment Assistance Project funded by SWD, and the New Dawn Project as well in 2006, serving the unemployed able-bodied CSSA recipients with adequate employment counseling services. In the 2011-12 Policy Agenda, the Chief Executive proposed to review various employment assistance services under the CSSA Scheme to integrate and improve these services, thereby enhancing effectiveness and achieving synergy. In line with this Policy, SWD eventually authorized 26 NGOs to provide employable able-bodied CSSA recipients with a range of one-stop integrated employment assistance services on a family basis, including the WE Services as a result of enhancing the Community Work Scheme. In this regard, our Centre has been one of the Operators of the Project in our agency, providing employment assistance services to the people concerned at Shamshuipo district.
